Rio Ohtake's thank you and report from 2017 Sanix


I had many good experiences participating in the SANIX tournament and camp in Japan.

First several wonderful teachers came and taught us many useful techniques. I will review what I have been taught and will try to use them in future competitions.

Second, our team won once in the tournament with all ‘Ippon”. No one thought that we would win. I was very happy. I lost in the second game of the tournament. I would like to find the reason why I lost and improve my skills.
